Chrysler Stops Sales Of Imported From Toledo T-Shirts Too

Posted Mar 22, 2011

Chrysler has stopped a dealership in Monroe, Michigan from selling “Imported from Toledo” T-shirts. Chrysler recently stopped a company called Pure Detroit from selling an “Imported from Detroit” T-shirt over trademark infringement. The Monroe Dodge Superstore in Monroe, Michigan is down the road from Toledo, Ohio. The dealership in Monroe wanted to find a way to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Jeep. The first Willys-Overland Jeep was built in 1941 at the company’s plant in Toledo, Ohio. The proceeds from the t-shirt sales were going to go to local charities too. ?We appreciate the enthusiasm and support of our dealers, but we do not want to dilute the Chrysler Brand?s ?Imported from Detroit? tagĀ­line,? stated Chrysler spokesman Michael Palese.
